I am running because I believe that Vermont should do a better job of technical and trades education, as part of improving our technical jobs sector in the state. More generally, I hope to work towards these goals:


  • Ensure that every resident has an effective voice in decisions that affect them
  • Support small Vermont businesses to develop the State’s economy
  • Redirect tax incentives from out-of-state corporations to proven local community initiatives


  • Provide Vermont’s children with the skills to make them successful in the 21st century economy
  • Guarantee every Vermonter paid time off when they’re sick
  • Ensure that every Vermonter has safe, decent work at a living wage

The Future

  • Promote environmentally-friendly energy sources and transportation
  • Divest Vermont from “too big to fail” banks and dirty energy corporations
  • Increase accountability for state expenditures, especially on private IT contracts

The long version:

Jeremy was born in Wisconsin and grew up in a suburb of Milwaukee. After high school, he took a longtime love of computers with him to the University of Wisconsin where he pursued a Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science. Following graduation, he moved back to Milwaukee and began work in the information technology (IT) field. After several years in IT, he had the opportunity to share his love of computers with others and began to teach courses in computer programming, networking, and security. After deciding that he wanted a career as a professor, he finished his Master’s Degree in Computer Science at the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee (UWM) while continuing to work full-time. He moved back into the IT field and began to pursue his PhD in the evenings at UWM while first managing computers and networks for a small software services company, and then working in information security for a Fortune 500 company. Around the same time, he married his then-girlfriend Cara who later gave birth to their first child. A year after he received his PhD, his second child was born and soon thereafter, he and his family moved to Vermont so that Jeremy could begin his dream job at Norwich University. He teaches and conducts research in computer networking, privacy in social networks, security of medical systems, and computational social choice.

Since arriving in Vermont, Jeremy and his family have lived in Barre, Montpelier, and now live at their home in Berlin. In his free time, he enjoys playing with his kids, reading, cooking, brewing beer, playing and listening to music, camping, fishing, and gardening.
